Summary

The 12th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Rankins missed a portion of last season due to injury and never quite got off the ground as a result. A born disruptor on the interior, Rankins managed to increase his snap count - and influence - as the season wore on. The Saints brass will expect Rankins to go from part-time player to full-time phenom in year two, and avoiding injury could see him produce a very strong DT1 campaign for fantasy owners. The news that Nick Fairley will miss the entire season due to a heart condition should see Rankins' opportunity increase. (June 27)
